Christian Ward


I’ve worn many hats; however, Christian Ward – Broker may be my favorite yet. After 33 years in Michigan and spending my childhood traveling up and down the East Coast, I’m thrilled to return to Raleigh and put down new roots in the City of Oaks. Even better? I’m delighted to help incoming families do the same!

With a decade of real estate experience and a lifetime of successful sales, branding and communication work, I’m uniquely equipped to help my buyers & sellers get the most out of our Triangle market. I pride myself on my people-first mentality, and I decided to #ChooseChappell because I saw the same level of commitment & integrity in the Chappell team.

I measure my success not by my number of transactions but by the satisfaction of my clients and the level of service I provide. It’s just the right thing to do.

Whether I’m preparing a home to sell, or negotiating a contract to close, I ensure my clients are informed, involved and feel important. You’ll typically find me working in ITB or North Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill; however, I’m always happy to hit the road to help out across the Triangle.

When I’m not trying to convince my three lovely adult daughters to join me in NC, I’m busy exploring the beauty of the Tar Heel State! Whether that means running, cycling, hiking, or even hitting the pickleball courts, I prefer to be moving. On the side, I host a podcast called “Interesting Humans,” where I connect with seemingly ordinary people with extraordinary stories to share.

"He is so kind and helpful!"

Christian was so helpful when I purchased my home in Raleigh! I was out of town and he walked through many homes for me while video chatting with me! He is so kind and helpful! I highly recommend Christian as a realtor and a great person!

"Christian really went above and beyond."

Christian did a great job selling my home. I am a very busy and needed someone to really take care of everything. I realize that is what an agent is supposed to do, but Christian really went above and beyond. He is very knowledgeable, had great recommendations to get my house looking its best, and contacts to do the minor work involved (which he arranged for). His marketing was great as were the pictures. He also had great thoughts on pricing strategy which really paid off. In short order, I had five offers which Christian expertly helped me evaluate. He then guided me through the rest of the process to closing and really got me maximum value for my house. I was totally satisfied and highly recommend Christian to anyone buying or selling a home.
